The Avaya VENA Fabric Connect solution is based on the IEEE 802.1aq Shortest PathBridging (SPB) protocol in conjunction with Avaya extensions that add Layer 3 routing capabilities to SPB functionality. The Fabric Connect solution has a range of features that can greatly simplify network operations and at the same time enhance the network’s ability to provide the appropriate level of service for business critical applications. These features include:
  • Edge-only provisioning
  • Layer 2 network virtualization supporting traffic isolation and automated network configuration for VM mobility
  • Layer 3 network virtualization for enhanced traffic isolation
  • Equal cost Layer 2 multi-pathing for optimized North-South and East-West traffic flows together with active-active connectivity for dual-attached servers
  • Protocol simplification via the use of IS-IS for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 control planes
